    My home does not have a television. Aside from not wanting to, I don't have time anyway. Besides which, I don't need to explain my experience to you. If you think you know the police then good for you. The way you talk comes across as privileged and therefore ignorant of how other groups have to endure police corruption and brutality.

    I've lived in NYC. The only place that cops are more corrupt is perhaps Chicago, or Florida State. If they decide that you've crossed the blue line they can easily plant evidence. Like I said, happens all the time whenever someone crosses them. You should see what they do to their own people who tattle. If an officer can get away with choking someone to death it should be a clear indication of the systemic problems going on.

    Get your head out of the sand.

    Funny how the worst places you describe, with the worst cops are liberal havens. Did you forget LA?

    I'm not privileged, except to have never had the desire to take residence in an anthill. I'm not wealthy, at least not monetarily, nor do I live high off the hog. I identify with people from all economic classes and grew up dirt poor. You city dwellers, I don't think you know what it means to actually know your community. They're too large for you to personally know everyone and you may not ever come in contact with a police officer on a personal, individual level. How many of your direct neighbors do you really know, have regular conversations with, know their lives and what they do, their families?

    Not really sure how that's relevant to what we're talking about.

    You're preaching to the choir. I not only left the big cities, I left the United States. My family is safer where we are now, and our community is more close knit than ever.

    Urban centers have major social problems all because there is lack of community and more scarcity. To be fair, people used to be able to live in them more affordably, but with the growing disappearance of the middle class it's becoming a rich vs. poor situation.

    No not really. I have only ever been arrested once, and in that case I got pulled over for being white in a neighborhood where white people apparently go to buy heroin... I had some weed on me...

    Furthermore I don't see how that's relevant at all. It still works in my favour because were arguing about if all pigs are corrupt. I was seeing if that was a admission that they are...

    No it shouldn't, and he was not.

    Pigs don't deserve the power they have. Most deserve to be in jail. The rest deserve to pay reparations and do community service for all the harm they have caused to community's around he country.

    No. Actually. People who believe police officers are mean, vengeful, angry, bitter racists, are seeing a reflection of themselves.

    Those who see them as helpful, positive, respectful, and protecting are also seeing their own reflection.

    Hmmm. Obama has disregarded the Constitution and set himself up as our Dear Leader, The One on the golf course.

    And many of you want to throw out a grand jury decision not to bring charges. I think those of us who support the grand jury process and oppose the Imperial President are consistent.

    Your mileage may vary.

    They are way less local today. They are responding to Eric Holder's Justice Department demands to comply or be investigated. Our local police are being nationalized. When Holder comes knocking he needs to be met at the door with plenty of armed men.
